The news is not surprising that Sens. Kennedy and his fellow Senator/skirt-chaser Tunney were in communication with the Andropov regime to mount a PR campaign countering Reagan's aggressive foreign policy by boosting the USSR. Dr. Sanity in Ann Arbor, a town with thousands of America-haters, has the best summary I have come across. Nut-quote on the old-timey MSM participation:
...if the proposal is recognized as worthy, then Kennedy and his friends will bring about suitable steps to have representatives of the largest television companies in the USA contact Y. V. Andropov for an invitation to Moscow for the interview. Specifically, the board of directors of ABC, Elton Raul and the television columnists Walter Cronkite or Barbara Walters could visit Moscow. The senator underlined the importance that this initiative should be seen as coming from the American side. (emphasis mine)
Yep, Baba Wawa had already earned her Comintern badge with Castro, Uncle Walter was a known Fellow-Traveller, and ABC had a whole raft of ultra-lefties when I worked on 20/20 for a few projects in 1980-2. Dr. Sanity also has good spew from paranoid whacko Gore Vidal towards the end; guess insanity runs with the family "Gore."
Of course, the major media will not touch this inflammatory information with a stick, just as they wouldn't out a homosexual because of their leftist values: Oops! Tom Maguire has a good take on the Kennedy treason evidence and of the Dem's getting busted trying to leak the NIE document, which involves Cong. Jane Harmon in two separate scandals, as she is implicated in the Larry-Franklin FBI treason case with leaking documents to AIPAC.
My guess is that the MSM is now going to call all these revelations "October Surprises" and write them off. Already, a WaPo article is trivializing the concept, in an effort to inoculate the Dems concerning any new revelations.
As one reader noted in a comment: At least in the Kennedy failure to get the Sovs involved in US elections, no one drowned.
this Kennedy story is getting buried....
I hope Rush picks this up and runs with it. That might force some others to pay attention to it. Naturally the ultra-leftist media are going to ignore it, or even actively try to bury it by trivializing it.
The MSM and Dems would call this simply a case of "hands across the water" but we might call it "greased palms across the water". Follow the $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$- there's got to be some serious $$$$ involved- then there's a better, more solid case for "treason".
We all know what and who the Neck Brace is. What he's done should be no surprise.
Although most folks have written off Ken Chase in his Senate Race against "Splash", it would be fun to see some money spent on some ads that bring attention to this issue, and other possible treasonous acts FatTeddy may have committed against our country.
The only place I've seen it is CNS... and that won't get it out there.

Will Ted Kennedy Ever Become President?
Nobody gives a flying fig what Kennedy proposed to Andropov 20 years ago. Kennedy could drown a woman as if she were a two-headed kitten, and nobody would hold him accountable in any practical sense of the word.
write howie @
and ask him to speak with Ken Chase today....
As is the Reid story, the Clinton corruption stories, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera...
Kennedy must have been miffed that he couldn't beat Carter in the Democrat primaries.
Our liberal friends working with the news media to obtain a political result is not new.
Yeah, yeah...Ted Kennedy hates America. So what else is new? The MSM doesn't care: they love the Democrat party. This traitorous behavior will be ignored by the networks and newspapers.
Unfortunately in Mass this news will probably increase traitor Ted's margin of victory. After all they love him as a murderer, they cherish their other Senator for conspiring with the enemy during a time of war and they reward one of their congress persons for running a prostitution ring out of his home. So somehow I think they just might look at Red Ted's actions as a badge of honor. Sad really.
